Welcome back to The Bite, Sheepshead Bites’ weekly column where we explore the foodstuffs of Sheepshead Bay. Each week we check out a different offering from one of the many restaurants, delis, food carts, bakeries, butchers, fish mongers, or grocers in our neighborhood. If it’s edible, we’ll take a bite.
Summer in the city. Hot sticky nights. Sweltering days. Sweaty bodies. Addled minds.
It’s time to head to the water. Just as our ancestors crawled out of the sea seeking release, we complete the circle by seeking refuge from the heat in the cooling waters.
So this week, The Bite high tails it over to Il Fornetto, 2902 Emmons Avenue, for some waterfront dining and fish. Specifically, I’m getting the Trancio di Salmone. Tu capisci?
